I suggest you make note of the offending bjjer and frag him if he posts in YMAS, LLL etc, if you really need revenge :-)
Also, I think there have been headgear discussions in Strikeistan (which has the added advantage of not being cool enough for the cool grappling kids).

Funny and helpful. I'd + rep you but apparently I can't here. Oh well.

that headgear is very nice, but i don't like the lack of chin protection very much... babo78 had one at the last couple of nyc throwdowns and he was complaining that it moves around a lot as well.
it's tough to get a decent price on headgear, i ended up buying them from a local muay thai coach i know who had them made to his specs in pakistan. i can manage to sell them in my school for $50 and they are full face, quality headgear, but i only make a couple bucks each, so the price isn't that great.
you might want to talk with the guys at honda martial arts supply in nyc http://www.hondamartialarts.com i know they carry a lot of different stuff and can even get custom stuff made.
fairtex makes really nice headgear, and i'm not sure if they have a wholesaler program, but theirs are very expensive, you might as well just make your students order their own fight gear ones."Face punches are an essential character building part of a martial art.

Or simply be very honest and state that this is the best you could find, and you are not making a dime on it.

I like the product from Top Ten. www.toptencanada.com
You can wear it for grappling and takedowns as well and it doesnt move around on the head."Sifu, I"m niether - I'm a fire dragon so don't **** with me!"

They were handing out this headgear at WAKO and I guess it was ok as far as headgear goes. Light and compact. but it sure is fuckin ugly.
